SaratogaCCW stresses proper education

and proper training.  We believe that anyone
who intends on carrying a concealed weapon
should not only be well versed in all New York
State firearms laws, but be proficient with the
use and maintenance of their firearm. 

You can't stop evil from showing its face...
But you can be prepared for it!

Saratoga County has recently seen a long overdue change.  Finally paving a real pathway for our residents to obtain their, "unrestricted" pistol license.  Our County Sheriff, and the County Judge played integral parts in making this happen.  Write to your local elected supervisors and officials.  Let them know how you personally feel, and how their opinion on this subject will certainly influence your vote in the future. 

As of late, our own NYS Government through legislation has been turning law abiding citizens into common everyday criminals.  Regardless of personal beliefs, the laws for New York State, are the laws for New York State.  Everyone needs to be well educated on any recent law changes that may affect them when owning or possessing a firearm. 

Our Proposal:

A County Judge and County Sheriff approved educational training class that once successfully completed and a recommendation from the instructor grants the ability to have an individuals pistol license carry restrictions lifted.

There are plenty of known qualified instructors throughout New York State that possess the passion, knowledge, and expertise to assure proper training and implementation of this approved class.

The approved class should potentially include:

• Six Months to 1 Year License Tenure
• Pre-Classroom worksheets & testing

• Drawing from a concealed holster proficiency

• Qualification on target(s)

• Detailed review of NYS Firearms Laws

• Refresher of the SAFE ACT and Home Safety

* These are just class examples.  Class specifics needs to be drawn out and approved by your local licensing body and required law enforcement. 

Write to your Local Licensing Official!
​Write to your Local County Supervisor!

This educational avenue for ALL New York State residents resulting in the lifting of
​un-legislatively applied restrictions is long overdue!  Don't settle for anything less!   

Why is it that if some residents lived in a different County within "New York State" their, "New York State" Pistol License would be treated differently?  Isn't that a clear example of a licensing body acting in an, "Arbitrary and Capricious" manor?

ALL New York State residents NEED to be granted the same opportunities and 
​freedoms that the others in New York State are allowed. 

Proper Education & Proper Training

"You won't get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There's only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don't actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time... It's a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers.  I happen to know this from personal experience.

- Ronald Reagan

"No ordinary American cares about Constitutional rights."

- Joe Biden

"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."

- Thomas Jefferson

SaratogaCCW's main goal and mission is to finally pave an avenue for ALL New York State residents to acquire their Unrestricted Pistol License through proper education.

We are here to remind our Local Legislature that localities are not allowed to treat the issuing of Licenses in a way that can be viewed as, "Arbitrary or Capricious".  ​

"We Believe in Well Educated & Well Armed Citizens!"
